's being removed from office, as a single side note. i mean, bill clinton went through -- he was keel hauled. >> yeah, yeah. >> this guy get a single side note. >> just a pesky asterisk. but, you know, politicians and presidents for years in washington have been using david petraeus as cover. if you can get underneath -- >> republicans said that name over and over. >> wrap yourself in the petraeus flag and you got immunity from almost anything. >> what is president obama worried about petraeus? >> i think it's -- i think he's being gracious now. i think maybe buyer's remorse, some people once you get into the details of this whacky situation, they're thinking maybe he should have stuck with him, maybe everything moved too fast, maybe he's -- he did what he did but maybe he's the victim -- >> before you jump to that, and i am -- the older i get the more leaning i get towards these -- >> meaning -- >> if it got out he had this affair with the reporter and also got out that the president knowing about it had kept him in office, what would that have been like? >> that would have been bad.
-- you won't do it again. >> tell the country that? >> tell the country. it's what bill clinton did. >> but he was impeached. >> under a little pressure. >> let's go to the latest developments in this. mrs. kelley, jill kelley, she's married, she was the one involved in being apparently -- she was scaring this other woman who was having the affair with petraeus. she complained to an fbi agent. this is where it became official. complained, jill kelley, complained to an fbi agent -- >> who was a friend of hers. >> who was being harassed. then she does this call. she called 911 one week complaining, that was jill kelley, tried to invoke diplomatic privilege to get the press off her lawn. let's listen to this. this is a little strange. >> i am an honorary consul-general, so i have inviolatability so they should not be to cross my property. i don't know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved as well? but it's against the law to cross my property. >> this is getting more kato kaling every day. >> that phone call replaced -- >> was she writing, claiming diplomatic immunity from
to the other. no one party can control the outcome of our collective deliberations. as bill clinton might say, it's just arithmetic. >> john boehner is making his bid for speaker of the house official in eye letter sent to his colleagues he says his priorities are taking on the president and democrats in the senate. he calls house republicans the last line of defense. mitch mcconnell is already thinking about 2014. the day after the election he held a fund-raiser for 1,000 bucks a person you could attend the reception. and here's a great perk about being first lady. michelle obama didn't want to wait until january to watch the third season of "downton abbey" so it sent dvds to the white house. the three of us are -- with hands on hips, where's ours? where's ours? >> if you read only one thing this morning, today's must read is courtesy of the national constitution center, which argues in a fascinating article why the petraeus affair has nothing on the nation's first sex scandal, hint, it included a duel and it's up on our facebook page alt facebook/jansingco. borm the naturally sweet monk fru
but achieves our common goal of balancing a budget. something bill clinton and newt gingrich did in the mid-90s. shannon: are you against closing loop holes? >> i'm in favor of new revenues through economic growth. if you grow the economy at 4% a year, that 4% a year over 2% a year over a decade raises $5 trillion in more revenue. not a tax increase. but revenue through growth. why would you raise taxes when you could debt $5 trillion by cutting marginal tax rates and getting rid of some of the overregulation that obama is threatening the economy with and having more economic growth and more people pat work? that's the better way to raise revenue. it's disingenuous to say both parties have failed. the republicans in the house passed the ryan plan which fundamentally reformed entitlements. it needs the senate and the president to go along with it. but the republicans passed a real budget in writing in legislative form not some essay about what they think might be done which is all the president has done. shannon: paul ryan did win his house seat so he will be back there with the budget committee
trying to do. >> it makes you wonder is this what we saw in the second term of bill clinton where you know, the republicans now okay, we had a democrat win re-election and here we go with our efforts to impeach the president as dick morris said on election night over twitter let's impeach the president. >> bill: my question is what are the -- what's the fbi doing with this in the first place and why did the white house not know, dianne feinstein not know, pete hoekstra not know. but eric cantor did? who's in control of the fbi? nobody apparently. >> yeah, well i think also just not comically really because there's not a lot that's funny about this but the fact that the director of central intelligence can't keep interference out makes you wonder how good of a spy he was. >> bill: he did go to -- he told him and he said let's keep this -- >> but this isn't what we need to be talking about right now. >> bill: we'll talk about what this election means coming up next. take your calls at 1-866-55-press. and peter welsh fr
'm going to finish. the i'm going to finish. under bill clinton we raised taxes on rich people. saw the biggest economic boom in american history. under george bush we lowered taxes on rich people go into economic ruin. >> this is problem with people with no connection. >> i'm going to i'm going to finish i'm going to finish. so there is not, based on our own experience a direct connection between raising rates and on wealthy people and economy going, going down. in fact the opposite happened. and so you can keep saying it doesn't make it true. rick: go ahead, pete. >> simon you have no experience in the private sector. never run a is business. that is problem when you have policy wonks. >> i run a business, 16 years. nice try, pete. >> solution for america. small businesses are answer here. president has a great opportunity to lead. >> i've been running a small business for 16 years. pete. rick: not everything was decided last tuesday. not everything was settled. we'll continue the conversation. simon and pete, we'll have you back again soon. >> thank you. >> sure. jenna: put your
. that is pretty evil. >> i don't think that happened under reagan or under bill clinton. marginal tax rate increase that democrats are looking for will do nothing more than help support the majority of middle class americans that not only support increases on, increase in tax rates on people who are earning over $250,000 but also support not cutting things like social security and medicare and medicaid. and so i think the democrats come in not feeling very, very, rather feeling very strong around this idea that they can create the right compromise and right balance to move this country forward. rick: terry, bill kristol, the prominent conservative, spent last couple days on this network talking about how republicans may want to go along with the president's plan to raise tax rates on those earners above 250,000. take a listen. i'll get your response. this is last night an "special report". >> the first takes rates expire on december 31st. rates are going up for everyone if nothing happens. if you think republicans can win a showdown preserving all the current tax rates against a president
cliff. martha: doug schoen, former pollster to president bill clinton. monica crowley, radio talk show host. both are fox news contributors and what i'm hearing through both of those quotes we're pretty much where we were the last time that the president and john boehner got together. that republicans are going to refuse to go along with any tax increases until, really because they want to see it done slightly different way which we can get into. the president says, that he won't budge either, monica. >> yes. what goes around and comes around and here we are exactly the same spot, martha, as you just said. there are two sacred principle at play for the republicans not raising taxes and cutting spending. focus seems to be because president and democrats do have control over this narrative only thing that seems to be at the conversation here, what we're talking about is, the tax issue, revenue versus rates. but i also think that the republicans really need to focus on cutting spending. that is the other part of this equation that is, just as important if not more important, martha becaus
to 39.6% which is what it was during the clinton administration. so bill kristol says, do that, make sure that most americans don't get any tax increase come january 1st. there will be plenty of republicans who will oppose any tax rate because it goes against their commitment not to raise tax rates, a equipment that governor norquist by signing those pledges, as you well know, ashleigh. my gut tells me there will be maneuver ra built between the president and john boehner. the president wants to make sure that rich people pay a little more in taxes. boehner says he's open to that but not by raising the so-called tax rate. he's opened to that by eliminating tax loopholes and exemptions and generating tax revenue by an improved economy if the gdp goes up. people will be making more money, presumably, that's the theory. there's some maneuverability. i suspect the pressure is so great that they will get some kind of a deal. it may not be a permanent deal but maybe enough to kick the ball down the road and study major tax reform over the next year. >> and so the congressional budget offic
